Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) factor analytic research to date has not provided a clear consensus on the structure of posttraumatic stress symptoms. Seven hypothesized factor structures were evaluated using confirmatory factor analysis of the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Checklist, a paper-and-pencil measure of posttraumatic stress symptom severity, in a sample of 1,218 women who experienced a broad range of workplace sexual harassment. The model specifying correlated re-experiencing… Expand
Confirmatory Factor Analysis of the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Checklist
Several studies have employed confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) to examine the latent structure of the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Checklist (PCL; Weathers, Litz, Herman, Huska, & Keane,Expand
The factor structure of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder symptoms among bereaved individuals: a confirmatory factor analysis study.
TLDR
Five alternative models of the factor structure of PTSD symptoms were examined in a sample of 347 mourners and showed that, in this group, PTSD symptoms are best conceptualized as forming four factors: reexperiencing, avoidance, dysphoria, and hyperarousal. Expand

TLDR
Tests of measurement invariance across race and education suggest that differences may exist in the underlying factor structure of PTSD, and a model specifying 4 correlated factors provided the best fit to the data, although no model fits were excellent. Expand
The structure of post-traumatic stress symptoms in young survivors of war
TLDR
Test four alternative factor models among a relatively understudied population of young civilian survivors of war who had experienced war-related events as adolescents to establish whether the factor structure of PTSD is consistent among various traumatized populations and age groups indicated that the four-factor model provided a better fit. Expand
The structure of post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms in three female trauma samples: a comparison of interview and self-report measures.
TLDR
Confirmatory factor analyses of interview and self-report data across three trauma samples suggest that measure idiosyncrasies may account for some of the inconsistency in previous factors analyses of PTSD symptoms. Expand
Factorial invariance of posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms across three veteran samples.
TLDR
Examination of PTSD symptom structure using the Davidson Trauma Scale across three veteran samples supported factor invariance across the three veteran cohorts, suggesting that cross-group comparisons are interpretable and implications and applications for DSM-IV nosology and the validity of symptom measures are discussed. Expand
Factor structure of posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms in the Australian general population.
TLDR
The present findings renew calls in the structural literature suggesting that the structure of PTSD should be revised in DSM-V, and given that the DSM is currently under revision, research addressing structural validity concerns is especially timely. Expand
Gender differences in the factor structure of posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms in war-exposed adolescents.
TLDR
This study investigated whether gender is associated with factor structure differences using the King et al. (1998) model of reexperiencing, avoidance, numbing, and hyperarousal PTSD symptoms and revealed many significant sex-linked differences. Expand
Measurement invariance of posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms among U.S. military personnel.
TLDR
Findings indicate differences in the level of observed responses across deployment subgroups that exceed what would be expected for individuals with similar PCL latent factors scores, and implications are discussed. Expand

The structure of posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms in combat veterans: a confirmatory factor analysis of the impact of event scale.
TLDR
The factor structure of the Impact of Event Scale (IES) is tested in a sample of 195 male combat veterans with chronic PTSD by using confirmatory factor analysis and a four-factor model, including Intrusion and Effortful Avoidance subscales, fit significantly better. Expand

Dimensionality of posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms in children exposed to disaster: results from confirmatory factor analyses.
TLDR
PTSD was best represented by a 2nd-order PTSD factor that manifests in 3 symptom clusters (Intrusion/Active Avoidance, Numbing/Passiveavoidance, and Arousal) that was cross-validated on 3 age groups and indicated factorial invariance across groups. Expand

TLDR
The authors found that a 4-first-order-factor model of PTSD provided the best fit and the relations of PTSD symptoms with sociodemographic and medical variables were also explored. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that posttraumatic stress reactions arise from a general mechanism, with contributions from 2 specific mechanisms. Expand
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Symptom Checklist: Factor Structure and English–Spanish Measurement Invariance

TLDR
This study used confirmatory factor analysis to compare alternative models of the structure of posttraumatic distress symptoms as measured by the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Checklist—Civilian version, and found the best fit was a four-factor model measuring correlated dimensions of reexperiencing, avoidance, emotional numbing, and hyperarousal.

Predictors of Emotional Numbing in Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
TLDR
Using hierarchical multiple regression in two separate samples of Vietnam combat veterans, hyperarousal symptoms are found to be the most robust predictor of emotional numbing and suggest that there is a substantive relationship between hyperarrousal symptoms and EN in PTSD. Expand
An Evaluation of Stress Symptoms Associated with Academic Sexual Harassment
TLDR
Those who had been sexually harassed reported more negative basic beliefs, more general distress, and more negative state mood after watching the sexual harassment video, relative to those who had not been harassed. Expand
Arousal, numbing, and intrusion: symptom structure of PTSD following assault.
TLDR
Numbing symptoms appeared to be particularly important in identifying individuals with PTSD, and the results imply that there are two patterns of posttrauma symptoms, one characterizing PTSD and the second characterizing a phobic reaction. Expand
